  • Matty's Cutting Pack Sale

    Hey Fellow OurFigs Family!
    The time has come for me to prune my trees in preparation for winter storage. In doing so I want to offer the opportunity for newer members or even seasoned growers to expand their collection. I’m following a good friend’s guidance (thanks Dan for letting me follow your template) on offering a wide selection of fig varieties in packs. I will be offering 3 variety packs, each will be unique – I am trying to minimize duplicate varieties in these packs so people can get them all and not have overlap. The goal of these packs is four fold; reduce size of trees for winter storage in garage, reduce storage in fridge; offer awesome prices for some AMAZING varieties for our members and finally KEEP MY WIFE HAPPY by keeping things out of fridge/keezer.
    Here is the list of my first variety pack that I will send out this first, all these were pruned today. The following #2 #3 packs will be offered once these are complete and I get them in the mail so I can try and minimize storage in my fridge.

    PACK#1 - DONE!
    CDD Noir – 2 Cuttings
    Robs Genovese Nero – 2 Cuttings
    Kathleen's Black – 1 Cutting
    RDB – 2 Cuttings
    Green Ischia – 1 Cutting
    Navid’s Dark Greek – 1 Cutting

    I'm asking $40 shipped. These are premade packs, you will get all the varieties mentioned, no substitutions as they will be done when this is posted and packed up. Hope everyone understands. Private message me if interested for PayPal or Google Wallet info and include shipping address in private message, i will only have a few of each pack. Will only ship to continental USA. I will post once I’m out.

    Each cutting will have at least three nodes. I will be cleaning all cuttings with antibacterial soap, letting them dry thoroughly and then wrapping in saran wrap and in put in zip lock bag.

    I will be doing one surprise cutting in each pack, so there will be a high end cutting in ONE of the lucky recipient’s pack#1 (they are all done so I won’t know who gets it).
    PACK#1 SURPISE = Siblawi

    Thanks - Matty

                    If no one already knows this, Tony is like the little devil on my shoulder telling me to do things.

                    I might have one or more packs available after I finish up existing orders. I have a 12hr workday tomorrow so pruning and getting outside is going to be limited.

                    To everyone who paid yesterday and today, I will be getting shipments out Monday to avoid weekend layover and also because Amazon send me the wrong bubble packs I ordered so had to reorder today. Will keep everyone posted, after 3+ years this is first time I'm selling so I am slower than some.

                    Matty
                    May the Figs be with you!

                      Also - if you messaged me with anything specific to my growing situation, please message me next week when things quiet down. The multiple threads on messages is hard to sort through, thanks everyone.

                    Does everyone plan on rooting these this winter or storing for a few months??

                      Ourfigs doesn't have a reputation system so I figured I post here. I ordered pack one and it arrived yesterday. Everything was labled, clean, and matched exactly what was described. Already got them in some pots to root.

                      Agree. Cuttings were in great shape. I am not starting them yet this year though, into the fridge for now.

                        Roc, how do plan on prepping the cuttings before they hit the ice box?

                          Since Matty said “I will be cleaning all cuttings with antibacterial soap, letting them dry thoroughly and then wrapping in saran wrap and in put in zip lock bag.”

                          I just individually wrapped them in Saran Wrap and put them back in the ziplock bag.

                      • #22
                        Yep, just like Roc said. All you need to do is rewrap into individual Saran wrap if storing longer. I left it as a pack because some people start growing sooner and some people are OCD (ME) and clean again. I always rewrap myself because I like have quality control keeping them in zip lock in the crisper is best. Thanks again guys, all remaining packages to be sent Manana.
                        May the Figs be with you!

                            Hey. Sorry but pack #3 sold out like hot cakes, I mentioned it above.

                            Might have another pack or two this week. Taking off tomorrow to finish pruning/moving/cleaning/inventory collection.

                            Be warned of some black Friday deals!

                            Michele- Sadly due to the updated regulations posted today regarding sales on the forum, I don't think I'll be able to offer any more packs here.

                            Too bad as I was going to be a premium package and a grab bag one

                              hey.... question... since FB doesn't really have much in the way of strict ebay related prohibitions.... I wonder if posting your packages on FB page of forum rather than forum posting itself would be treated differently or also prohibited...
